With six obstetricians and three locations, our obstetrics practice is both intimate and accessible. At RGOA, we believe that your involvement in your own birth process is the first and most important step toward a safe and satisfying delivery. To that end, we help you develop a plan that is consistent with your own needs and goals. Because no two patients are alike, our approach to labor and delivery is equally diverse. While we support, for example, women who choose an epidural for pain relief, we are also advocates of acupuncture and natural childbirth. We have a low Cesarean section rate and we are supportive of vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC) deliveries. We do not perform routine episiotomies and we are strong proponents of breastfeeding.

Affiliation with Highland Hospital
We are a private gynecology and obstetrics practice. We deliver babies at the Highland Hospital Family Maternity Center. One of our physicians is on call 24 hours a day at Highland to ensure the best delivery for you and your baby. We perform surgery at Highland Hospital and area surgicenters. Separate from our private office, we also educate OB/GYN residents in an academic setting at Highland Hospital.
RGOA is proud to offer both obstetric and gynecologic ultrasounds performed by highly skilled and accredited practitioners with years of experience employing the latest technology and equipment in the field. We are an accredited ultrasound testing site. This accreditation means that our physicians and technical staff have received specialty training in ultrasonography, and that our equipment, documentation and procedures meet rigorous national standards of excellence.
We are experts in the use of transvaginal sonography in gynecology and early obstetrics. We also perform sonohysterograms (saline infusion sonograms) for our patients, which provide a more detailed evaluation of the uterine cavity. We have experience working with high-risk pregnancies and with gynecologic ultrasound. Our patients appreciate our warm environment and our ability to put them at ease.
